How I lived through discrimination, illness and grief.
I had the pleasure to interview Eunice Mulamula, a Community Psychiatric Nurse who says: "Resilience is the ability to stay afloat while you are in the midst of a storm." Register with WITHSTO and access all podcasts for free.
Learn from the wonderful Eunice Mulamula, a Community Psychiatric Nurse. Eunice says: "In my life, I have met difficult situations, challenges such as discrimination, illness and loss of loved ones; this led to disappointment, sadness, anger, among other emotions. I felt defeated and at times felt like disappearing from the face of the world, or sometimes when I went to sleep, it felt good because I found relief and challenge was waking up in the morning relieving the same experience again and again. However, I knew as long as I was still alive, life had to go on, and I had to be me in my capacity as a mum, a wife, a sibling and an employee. I, however, detached from friendships and other relationships because I could only deal with so much. I remember my mother telling me it’s not finished until you die. Keep fighting till your last breath, so I‘ve always reminded myself of that."
Our free podcasts supports your resilience development using the well-researched principle of mutual aid (Shulman, 1999). They *offer examples of individuals problem solving, *discovering that others have similar problems, *sharing facts, opinions, values and judgements, *gaining a universal understanding of resilience, *entering taboo areas and freeing thereby you to enter them too, and *strengthening your faith in taking on difficult tasks through the support of others.
